I am trying to locate my GGrandfather, Charles (B.?) BROWN.
What I know is:
a. His wife, Mary E., was a dressmaker in Boise City, 1891
b. Son, James, was born abt. 1875 - Boise City
c. He was a miner
d. He was of Irish descent
Looking through the Silver City, Owyhee ID Census of 1870...I discovered two Charles
BROWNs ...that were miners.
Charles #1 was 43 yrs - born in Ireland.
Charles #2 was 40 yrs - born in England (B.=middle initial)
Checking further...in "The Owyhee Co. Gleanings," I saw that a Charles BROWN had
died in the Succor/Sucker Creek area
12 March 1885. Our Charles was alive until at least 1911.
I would appreciate ANY leads or suggestions someone would be willing to share. Does anyone
happen know of a webpage or some other resource pertaining to gold/silver seekers of the
early Idaho Territory?
